to take a look at this. let's take a look at george bush. you're talking about. here is george bush talking about this from the golf course the other day about this whole thing about whether we go to war or not, take an act of war against assad in syrah. >> the president has a tough choice to make. and if he decides to use our military, the greatest military ever backing him up. i was not a fan of mr. assad. leallele he is an ally of iran and has made mischief. >> that was the common sense george bush i liked years ago. i wish he we had that years ago. we don't like the guy. he has bad friends. >> he is trying not to get in obama's way and not to play a role in this. i was funny was elite level trolling by donald rumsfeld. he said the president hasn't made the case for war, which just set off people on the left, right and center all over the place. when you have donald rumsfeld questioning your intelligence and your case for going to war in the middle east, i mean, i think that's trolling on a level. >> they all belong where they are with the american enterprise institute. thank you
, the cold war back? >> basically. this is a very hawkish wing when george w. bush a decade ago said he looked into putin's eye and saw a good soul, they didn't believe it then. >> do they miss their teddy bear? >> this is an opportunity to take it farther. >> here's more guys, jump in here john. rick santorum, jim demint, my god, jim demint, and john bolton, who can't wait to get back in power, talking about the global terrorist alert as an excuse to hit the president. they said he's being weak because he put us on watch. let's watch him. >> i think it's really a consequence of the policies of this administration. if you look at benghazi and what happened, we haven't seen anything from this administration really go after the people who were responsible or the network behind it. and i'm sure if you're looking at it from a terrorist perspective, you say, well, here's a administration that's pulling back, that's timid. >> our attempt to placate parts of the world, reset, whether it's russia or somewhere else, are clearly not working, and the perception of weakness in this administration i
presidents. spotty, a king charles, who was born in 19289 under president george bush 41 and then had the good fortune to return again with george w. bush when he became president in 2001. so two presidents for that dog. however the most famous by far of all the white house is fal la, franklin roosevelt's is scottish terrier and mgm, the movie company made a movie about him called fala at hyde park in technicolor. the only first dog to be honored with a statue in a presidential memorial down in washington near the tidal basin. look at that big dog. next up, maine's republican governor paula page is in hot water today for allegedly claiming in a speech at eight private fund-raiser that president obama "hates white people." while the event was closed to the press, word of the remark leaked to the portland press newspaper which confirmed it with two other republican lawmakers who were present at the time. according to the herald, "lepage talked how obama could have been the best president ever if he had highlighted his by racial ever. he said the president hasn't done than because he hat
is just a continuation of president george w. bush in the foreign policy realm where the president, this president is just continuing the hawkish policies of the bush administration. and then the next minute, they're claiming that the president is weak in foreign policy showing weakness to our enemies and yet, completely forgetting about all the drone strikes that the president is doing, and the other thing about what jim demint is doing which i find rather callous is would he rather the president of the united states not close the embassies and make our -- and make american personnel targets for a terrorist attack? i wonder what they would be saying if the president followed through on the advice that they're giving him. >> you mean another benghazi. >> yeah, exactly. >> benghazi, benghazi. right on cue, rick santorum not a foreign policy expert accused the president of being timid. i love the personifications, timid. muscular foreign policy. they turn on to some school yard kind of event. let's watch. >> i think it's really a consequence of the policies of this administration. i
dirty tricks from a former president, george herbert walker bush. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> we've talked a lot about congress's automatic across the board spending cuts are having very real damaging effects on people around the country. more evidence this week of the extent of that damage. catch this, the department of health and human services reports more than 57,000 children have been forced out of head start through the funding cuts of that program. one of the great programs, head start. head start helps lower income children as you all know under the age of five get a leg up so they can start school with the other kids. the budget cut hit head start with the biggest cut in funding since the program started in '65. that's bad news. we'll be right back. cialis tadalafil for daily use helps you be ready anytime the moment's right. you can be more confident in your ability to be ready. and the same cialis is the only daily ed tablet approved to treat ed and symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently or urgently. tell your doctor about all your medical
, president george w. bush had made 50 visits to his texas ranch totalling all or part of 323 days. knoller said that he always puts the word "vacation" in quotes because as he said u.s. presidents don't really get to take a vacation. the job comes with them 24/7. well, i'm hoping president obama plays lots of golf in the next couple of days or shoots hoops or whatever else he needs to do to maintain his mental edge. i felt the same way about president george w. bush, and i never begrudged him his time at the ranch. all told he was there during 490 days during his presidency. the health of the country is largely a function of the physical and mental health of its commander in chief. and if blowing off a steam with a couple of bogeys or a beer in the clubhouse keeps him sharper when the red phone rings, we're all better off for it. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being was. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, michael, and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, a big victory for justice and civil rights. today a federal judge ruled that new york's stop a
vituperative those times were. and there were people on the left who aimed some of that at george w. bush. admittedly, it's spun out of control now, because these folks are in control of the republican party. so it's at a fevered pitch now. but we've got this mad cycle going where each party -- yes, go ahead. >> but let me challenge that nancy pelosi had an opportunity to jump on george w. bush in the same regard. look at what she did here. she didn't play that game. she shot it down right away. i'm not going to get into delegitimization. let's watch nancy. she did not let them play this game. let's watch her, please. i'm sorry. >> okay, go ahead. >> she has pledged as a speaker she would giver the republicans rights like allowing them to introduce amendments to bills. but she may have trouble reigning in the democrats' appetite for revenge there has already been talk of multiple investigations and impeachment of the president. >> no. impeachment is off the table. >> and that's a pledge? >> well, it's a pledge, yes, it's a pledge. of course it is. it is a waste of time. >> so that's compl
conversation that took place between president nixon and a young can george herbert walker bush, the senior bush, the chairman of the republican national committee at the time. listen to how chairman bush broaches the delicate subject of dirty tricks. asking president nixon whether he should divulge the information he has, that is bush has, directly to the president or if he should go to henry peterson who was investigating watergate for the justice department. take a listen. >> would you rather not know details if i told you something or would you rather i tell peterson something that i know. >> no, you tell me. i can tell peterson. >> is he involved because he was in the dirty tricks department. >> wow. the conversation continues as bush continues to report on the activities of ken rights a former youth director for the campaign but who worked at the national committee at the time of this conversation. >> he said that he was involved in handling large sums of money which cash money. he says that he was involved in doing some espionage on muskie and stuff like that. and he said that. >> wh
gershon, a former george w. bush speech write are says cruz views this as the last stand against obama care, a conservative alamo instead, it would be a little bighorn. cruz bids to become a custer for our time, an actual shutdown of the government the only realistic outcome of his strategy would work for conservatives only if voters blamed it on obama's intransigence. so americans would need to side with the faction of a disdained institution pursuing a budgettarily maneuver that will many republican maneuvers regard as desperate and doomed. joining us now are two political analysts, david corn of mother jones and sam stein with the "huffington post." sam, what probably brought this to a head? what finally got people like gershon and krauthammer and others i sim out there over the prairie to say we'd better be careful. if cruz gets control of the opposition here of the republican party, we may be in trouble. >> i think it was the sheer overtness of it. it wasn't as if he was trying to set the stage for a government shutdown. he was sort of actively courting it. and when you're trying
was hit harder than at any time since pearl harbor. but without blaming george w. bush for failing to act sufficiently to that warning an of august 6th, 2001, should anyone blame this president and his people for acting in time this time? joining me tonight from cairo, nbc news chief foreign correspondent richard engel and with us from new york, msnbc terrorist analyst governor coleman. nbc is reporting now the interrogation behind the worldwide terrorist alert this week was an intercepted communication between the leader an of al qaeda in the arabian peninsula and the leader of al qaeda central over in pakistan. the man who succeeded osama bin laden zawahiri. the two men reportedly agreed that they wanted to do something big. timed to the end of the muslim holy month of ramadan which is right now. and that's what led the united states to close 19 embassies. there they are on the map and consulates in the mideast and africa. there's still a lot that remains unknown including which target. over the weekend, one thing clear from every lawmaker and official with knowledge of the attack, nobo
are not, including former special counsel to former president george herbert walker bush, william otis, who characterized holder's move as a move for drug dealers. the professor joins me now, along with laura murphy, director of the washington legislative office of the aclu. professor, make the argument. why is this a win for drug dealers? >> it's a win for drug dealers because under the attorney general's proposed policy, the cost of doing business has gone down. he has said that he is going to allow, indeed he is going to require federal prosecutors from now on to omit the amount of drugs being dealt from the indictment. that in turn will permit judges to go below the otherwise applicable mandatory minimum sentence. when the price of doing business goes down, that's a win for the person doing the business. unfortunately, the business here selling drugs. and we're not talking just about marijuana. the federal mandatory minimums apply as well to child pornography, to selling heroin, methamphetamine, pcp. these are not harmless drugs, and they lead eventually to severe injury and in som
approach modeled on world-weary pragmatists like dwight eisenhower and george herbert walker bush is designed to avoid them. but sometimes the refusal to take a bold, principled stand turns out to be the riskiest course of all. respond to that. >> this is an historic moment for the middle east in the same way 2 1/2 years ago the obama administration took one of the most imaginative and boldest positions in saying to president hosni mubarak, an ally for 30 years, it's time to go. and it was an important precedent and standing on the side of the people after tolerating autocratic rule for so long. this is a moment that the administration looks like it is willing to accept a coup, and that is not going to look good in the history books. so it is a moment of principle because this is a precedent. egypt is the most important country, the cornerstone of the peace process as well as u.s. relations with the entire arab world. so lots at stake here. >> robin, thank you very much for your time. >> thank you. >>> up next, what bill clinton could teach barack obama about dealing with the othe
